    Doesn't the 6800 XT come out tomorrow? Why no reviews today? I mean sure, scalpers/bots are going to get them all and it will be months before anyone can buy one for retail price, but still I'm curious about performance.

    AMD lifts review embargo the same day as they go on sale.

    Just buy it blind, It's AMD, what could possibly go wrong?

    Ha. No thanks. I have too many questions about performance. I'm not feeling the 3080 ..especially after seeing benchmarks for Assassin's Creed and Godfall already struggling to average 4k/60. But at the same point, nvidia has gotten too slimy for me to keep supporting. Guess maybe I'll wait until December and see what the 6900 XT can offer. Just crazy there's no benchmarks ahead of time. Makes me think they're hiding something. Wouldn't you want to boast if you had a stellar product?

    I think they are trying to avoid an Nvidia type situation and be accused of paper launch

    I'm sure they will be widely available, just like the Zen 3's.

    Unboxing on the 16th and full reviews on the 17th would have been a lot better getting a initial feel for the GPU before the inevitable rush of people and bots trying to snag a stock 6800 and 6800XT depending on what time some stores allow for buying the hardware.

    Think custom models would follow after these respective OEM design a week or two perhaps and then it's the 6900XT's time to be reviewed probably same as here same day as it's retailing.
    No idea about custom 6900's though and what the stock situation is for the full chip design that these use.


    EDIT: Well getting a ton of facial expressions from 'Tube video reviews if nothing else and some benchmark results also ah that algorithm but it works so it has to be done or your direct competition get all the views. :(

    At least traditional website reviews like this one still exist, for now.
